Strawberry Soup(ish)

Never to turn away a challenge, this month I join in on the fun with the monthly challenge. The challenge for this month was to use something in season. I've always wanted to try a fruit soup. I found this interesting recipe for Strawberry Soup at allrecipes. I made a few changes based on the ingredients I had in my kitchen as I was too hot and too lazy to go shopping! It was delicious, but more beverage like than soup though. Will have to try another fruit soup again.... someday. I have posted the recipe as I found it and in the italics I have put my changes. Enjoy!
Strawberry Soup(ish)
serves five

2 pints strawberries
2 cups plain yogurt   I used vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
I replaced the cardamom with ground ginger

Directions
In a blender, combine the strawberries, yogurt, orange juice, sugar, water and cardamom. Puree until well mixed. Chill and serve.

Really disappointed that this wasn't more soup like... I'm going to have to do another recipe for this challenge.  I've got a bunch of basil growing, wonder what I can come up!

Definately looks more smoothie then soupish. Thanks for sharing.

And I can't believe strawberries are in season where you live! I am in SC.

strawberries are just about out of season here. Picking was a bit late this year because the weather was more wet and cool than usual.
